of power in washington looks -- the same. [laughter] the white house and the senate will still be in democratic hands come january, the house still firmly controlled by the republicans. on the heels of a hard-fought contest, president obama appeared ready to reach across the aisle. at one point sending out a message that read, we're all in this together. that's how we campaigned, and that's who we are. thank you. and last night in his victory speech, a similar tone. >> i believe we can seize this future together! [cheers and applause] because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america! [cheers and applause] and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward. [cheers and applause] and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. thank you, america! god bless you! [cheers and applause] god
to really change the way washington works? >> i think a lot of it will be the tone that he and the republican leadership set coming out of this. i think there is clearly the possibility of change. i think that on the president's side and those of us that have been supportive and the democratic side, it is not a day of "i told you so" or gloating, because there was at a lot risk here. we'll dealt everything in this election from voter suppression to gay rights to women rights, so in many ways, we can exhale and say, we didn't go backwards. now how do we put our best foot forward to go forward and appeal to the republicans that we need to have some common ground without compromising our principles. that's going to be a delicate balance. i think romney's statement last night was positive and obviously i'm not one that has given him a lot of commendations but he said what needed to be said last night that i didn't think he would and we'll see where it goes. i think that the president and what he said and the tone he set is where those of us that are supportive are going to have
can come up with. >> we need to bring it back into balance. >> molly, you covered washington. this is the fundmental issue we are talking about. it's an ase metric polarization. it's a political science. impeer cal way of trying to track where people are and where the caucuses are. the originator of this scoring system ran the new numbers. the 112th senate is on top and the 113th senate is on the bottom. there's not that nuch difference. both peaks narrowed. they cluster more around their caucuses. can the senate function under its current conditions of polarization on one hand and super majority on the other? >> not so far, right. in the last couple years, they haven't gotten a lot done. i think this argument about, you know, status quo versus a mandate for if not change something. it's interesting. it's like the republicans are making this argument that there was a mandate to do nothing because they do not want to see liberals take the ball and run with it. and accomplish a lot of their policy proposals or ideas. so -- but i think you see wiggle room. you do -- i mean every
30 governors for the team. which is the highest level in 12 years. maybe another in washington state, so there was some bright spots, but overall, i agree. a combination of tone and message and reaching out to new and minority voters and making sure that we do a better job on the ground. >> well, gracious to come out and directly admit it, although you are right on on the governor's side. one of the wings that cornyn was referring to was the tea party and some big name tea partiers lost last night. joe walsh, josh mande ll, richard murdoch in indiana. he had a specific situation there with the comments he made on abortion, but i think the question is is the tea party still relevant? is it now become an albatross? >> erin, what the tea party and other conservatives that believe we ought to -- balance budget, i think that's pretty a mainstream idea. they helped me immensely with the victory in virginia three years ago. i think it's how we organize. how we deliver the message. we've got to be a lot more inclusive and open and energetic by expressing why these are -- we've just got to do
for washington. so you should keep your eye on who gets come kinects this year. there are going to be some members of congress who get them and some who don't. >> what sort of plan do you give the republican who won't agree with anything? this one, of course. the president is asking for a $1.6 trillion tax increase, $50 billion in economic stimulus, and the power to raise the debt limit without congressional approval. meanwhile, he will work the fine savings in entitlements. not to the man sitting on the naughty list. senator mcconnell said that he burst into laughter at the proposal. you know what is really funny, senator mcconnell, the president has the leverage. speaker boehner know it is. >> you think the white house is trying to squeeze you and, if so, will that work? >> well, most of you know me pretty well. what you see is what you get. and while i may be a fchl fable and someone who can work with members of both parties, which i've demonstrated over the 22 years that i've been here, i'm also rather dernled to spend our spending problems. >> i don't hear an answer to the question. h
, and minnesota refused to ban it. in washington state, the vote is not called yet. they are still counting the vote and we will be watching it closely, but if you are on the pro-gay right side in washington state, it should be noted that it is looking pretty good. in iowa, anti-gay activists were sure that they were going to turf out a judge for ruling in favor of marriage equality. they had done it before, to a bunch of other judges. they had been successful every time they had tried before. but not this one, not this time. judge wiggins in iowa keeps his seat. nevada elects its first african-american congressman this year. america gets our first openly gay united states senator. america gets our first-ever asian american woman senator from hawaii. her seat in the house, i should note, gets filled by this woman, a democratic iraq war veteran. time going to tell you right now that her name is tulsy gabboard, because she is on the fast track to being very famous some day. speaking of iraq war veterans, tammy duckworth, veteran helicopter pilot, lost both her legs in congress, she is going t
's the toughest job you can do not in uniform. but back home in washington, the opposition party, the republican party, at least some of them, have decided they do not want anybody to fill that job. senator kelly ayotte of new hampshire says she will block the nomination of anyone to be the top diplomat for the united states. john mccain has said the same thing, that he would not support confirming anyone, anyone for that job. the way he feels now. both senators saying they would prefer nobody had that job because of their upset over comments made on sunday morning talk shows by a member of the obama administration on the weekend after the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. republican senator susan collins has now decided that that administration official, u.n. ambassador susan rice, is someone she could not support for secretary of state if president obama nominates her for that job because susan rice chose to appear on those sunday shows at all, regardless of what she said there. >> i continue to be troubled by the fact that the u.n. ambassador decided to play what was essentially a pol
for us this morning from washington. john boehner was the guy who said he didn't think a lame duck congress could do big things. what can be done in the next, what did i say, 53 days? >> well, maybe finding some sort of stopgap measure. some sort of framework on tax reform, soledad. i think that's the goal here. the fact is, house republicans and president obama and senate democrats, they don't really have a choice. they have to do something, and that became very clear yesterday when the cbo put out a report showing that if the country goes over the fiscal cliff you're looking at economic calamity. you're looking at unemployment ticking up, perhaps two points. you're looking at a recession next year. so, also listen to the conciliatory language that we're hearing from the hill and that we may be hearing from president obama when he speaks here at the white house this afternoon. listen to what john boehner also said about being reasonable. >> we can talk about all kinds of things we may disagree on. i'm the most reasonable, responsible person here in washington. the president knows
's a woman and has access and writes a book ab a man in washington is not reason enough to think there was more than that and given his reputation, his moral character, how many respect him at such a high level here in washington and even as director in the cia, there were sometimes personality clashes. sources that told me between him and the number two in charge who the president has asked to step up in that number one role. more sort of his mind set in the way he felt things should be downed, so people are stunned. >> fred, given the timing of it, that this has come just a week before he was supposed to testify about the benghazi situation, which now he isn't, but we have some news on that in just a few moments, what was his relationship with president obama? >> i'm told that a coweuple of years ago when he was still commander in afghanistan, there was tension with members in the white house staff. when they were reviewing the options on whether to put in more troops, options to box the president in. i've been told in the last couple of years that relations are very good with

with danny vargas and the washington post's ann kornbluth. the man everyone talks about when you refer to polls, nate silver of the new york fimz 538 blog. he predicts president obama has a 91% chance of winning re-election. the president will win 313 electoral college votes, governor romney will win 225. >> it's not a coin toss at that point. it's close, but you'd have to have a case where the polls are off across the board. it could happen, but if anything, the race has broken toward president obama a bit in the last 48 hours. >> that, by the way, was nate on last night on colbert. here's something funny making the rounds. lo look at this on social media. it reads keep calm and trust nate silver. join the election day conversation on twitter. you can find us at @tamron hall or at @newsnation. we'll have more on "news nation" live from the beautiful democracy plaza. i like that picture. no, no, no, stop! humans -- one day, we're coming up with the theory of relativity, the next... stop, stop, stop! my car! not so much. but that's okay. you're covered with great ideas like optional bet
of ohio. >> dr. peterson, "the washington post" to are's point had an article entitled, mitt romney's campaign insults voters. through all the flip-flops there has been one consistency in the campaign of republican president nominee mitt romney, a contempt for the electorate. mr. rrm seems to be betting that voters have no memories, poor arithmetic skills and general inability to look behind the curtain. we hope the results tuesday prove him wrong. >> yeah, again, if we put that revenge comment in its proper context, part of what that revenge is about is romney's violation of the public trust. when we look at these different things that have gone on in the campaign, it's very, very difficult to see mitt romney as an authentic campaigner or authentic politician. that's where you get the revenge piece. that's where the oped seems to be right on point. again, we look at a number of different issues. look at the adz playing in ohio right now. you look at that chrysler ad, you look at this desperate republican ad trying to convince black folk that the republican party are on their side.
, sanctions on iran, sanctions on north korea. you're not in the daily ma maelstrom in washington, d.c. the information that the intelligence community provided her at the time, but that intelligence changes. so i think the president is right, to back his people. secondly, to say that ambassador rice was deceptive is wrong. she is reading from pieces of paper that you get every morning from either a briefer or the intelligence community and that's what she had when she went on those news shows. but to suggest that she is trying to be deceptive is just not the case. she is a very good ambassador. >> i think the issue there is that that line of argument almost cuts both ways and lindsey graham brought that up. if she isn't the person to be talking substantive about this, just reading briefings and not the qualified person on benghazi why was she put out there. why was susan rice the person delivering the administration's message when it probably should have been the secretary of state? >> well, i think if it were the secretary of state or whomever, both of them would have been reading
matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. you thought that mitt romney would have stopped this crap. during the campaign he was out there selling it, that president obama was buying black votes by dumping the work requirement for welfare. remember that little sugar plum? it had it all, the accusation that minority voters could be scarfed up with chump change. throw them something and the votes will come pouring back. here he is yesterday, romney, sha noosichmoozing with his don about how the whole thing went wrong. i bought the minority was health care and bought the students. wow, great work there, mitt. you're at it again with your double barrels. one, claims that aren't true, and, two, that old dog whistle of yours, fact. people in the income bracket you mentioned have to kick in to get health care. fact, students still have to play interest on their college loan. nobody is getting anything for free. and the sick thing is your need, mitt, they claim they did. to say the president didn't quite win the election was one big bribery case. question, why is mitt still doing t
in january 1st if washington can't reach a deal. a lot of people fear it's going to be a repeat of what happened in 2011 when the republicans 4e8d the debt ceiling hostage to get what they wanted. but thing, i guess, you could say are a bit different. we are two days removed from a landslide victory, as well as a new 55-45 democratic senate majority. the president is also the winner of the popular vote. did you hear that, republicans? winner of the popular vote with the majority of the country supporting him. the only area in government where the democrats fell shot was in the congress, the house of representatives. the should be enough to deny president obama a mandate. mitch mcconnell made a statement saying the voters have not endorsed the failures or successes, simply given him more time to finish the job they asked him to do, together with a congress that restored balance to washington after two years of one-party control. now, not so fast. the actual number of votes cast for house seats favored the democrats by a half a million votes. this is no man dade for house republicans, but
